My seam ripper and I have been spending quality time together. Her name is “Dame It,” because that is what I yell whenever I need her.
The “Puss in the Corner” block is actually the “Puss in the Center” of section #1. This part of the section was very easy to put together — and I still had to use my seam ripper because I sewed the two long strips on the wrong side of Puss.
The strips will ru the full length of the quilt, top to bottom. They will be intersected by other blocks. I am trying to keep the strips scrappy and colorful, in the true spirt of Jen Kingwell’s, Gypsy Wife Quilt pattern, yet still have my blocks hold their own amid the chaos. I chose the strips with careful deliberation. Setting out to make things both clash and match is a mental workout. I have a feeling keeping the strips in order from top to bottom may very well provide Dame It with steady exercise, as well.
Section 1, Part B; ready.
